For more than 30 years, Outward Bound has been proud to deliver wilderness expeditions for our nations' veterans. These expedition, customized specifically for veterans and active duty service men and women, are designed to help ease the often difficult transition home by drawing on the healing benefit of the wilderness, teamwork, and challenge.
Thanks to generous support of our donors, these courses are available tuition and travel-expense free to any veteran or active duty service member that has deployed to a combat area.
Veteran expeditions are designed to be fun and challenging, are suited for those in good physical condition and are opportunities for veterans to:
Re-experience many of the positive aspects of military service through challenge and teamwork
Develop skills to assist them in adjusting to life at home
Candidly discuss obstacles faced by veterans
Rediscover their physical and emotional strengths
Help translate military values and commitment to service in a civilian environment
Enjoy a unique and inspiring adventure surrounded by fellow veterans in the beauty of the country for which they have served
